Description: Oral history roundtable discussion with Philip R. Lee and faculty and staff members of the UCSF Black Caucus, led by oral historian Nancy Rockafellar. Lee joined the UCSF faculty in 1969 and from 1993 through January 1997 served as Assistant Secretary for Health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He helped found the UCSF Institute for Health Policy Studies and was an advocate for diversity in US medical schools in the 1960s and 1970s. The UCSF Black Caucus was founded in 1968. The group engaged in a variety of civil rights initiatives and social justice projects. Members fought to increase minority student admissions, supported custodial and technical staff in labor disputes, and campaigned for more diverse hiring at all levels of the university.
